• “Men think lightly of sin; not only sinners, but the saints do not view it in its proper light. Sin is not a light thing in the sight of God. The Church of God is asleep.” – Mary Winslow

Like Eve by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 09/01/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: In the Garden of Eden, Satan tempted Eve to disobey God and eat the fruit that God had put off-limits. He said her eyes would be opened and she would be like God—but it was a lie. The moment she ate, Eve became spiritually blind, unable to see the truth. Her fellowship with God was broken, and she took on a sinful nature.

These characteristics that describe Eve describe us, too. We’re born separated from God, unable to do anything to please Him.

But here’s the good news. Jesus came to this earth and took the punishment for Eve’s sin and for ours. Through His sinless life, His death on the cross, and His resurrection, we can be forgiven of all our sin. We just need to admit that we’re blind like Eve and put our faith in Christ.

Have you ever thought about how much like Eve you are? How much you need a Savior?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
